EIB Stations / Points / Tasks

 

Below
is a list of the stations, points, and
tasks for the EIB test. Unless otherwise
noted, each point is a retest element.
Failing a performance measure at a point
requires the candidate to retest that
point only, not the entire station. For
example, if a candidate fails any or all
performance measures on the night land
navigation course, he retests only the
night land navigation course. However, if
a candidate fails both the day and night
land navigation courses, he retests both,
and each retest counts as one of the
candidate’s two allowable retests. That
candidate will not be allowed any more
retests.


           
a.        
At Station E, test one of the
following: the SINCGARS or the ASIP radio
but not both.


           
b.        
At Station L, test either the M60
machine gun or the M240B machine gun but
not both.

           
c.        
At Station N, test either the
caliber .50 machine gun or the MK 19 40-mm
grenade machine gun but not both.

           
d.        
Ensure that scorers complete score
sheets based on the examples.

           
e.        
The commander gives each soldier a
completed requirements sheet and a blank
score sheet. The completed requirements
sheet should specify the numbered location
of each testing stake.

           
f.         
Uniforms for candidates
participating in the EIB test include–

           
(1)       
Army
Physical Fitness Test. Candidates
wear the standard Army physical fitness
uniform, adjusted seasonally by the
Commander.

           
(2)

other stations. For all other
stations, candidates wear the following
uniform items in the manner prescribed by
the unit SOP for normal tactical
